Lawsuit Filed after Deadly Crash Involving Greyhound Bus and Freightliner

On August 30, 2018, a freightliner truck-tractor driven by an employee of JAG Transportation suffered a tread separation of its left front tire while traveling eastbound on I-40 in McKinley County, New Mexico.

Following the tread separation, the freightliner crossed a 33-foot-wide earthen median, jackknifed, and continued into the westbound lanes where it struck a Greyhound bus carrying 48 passengers and its driver. Of the 49 people onboard the Greyhound bus, eight people were killed and dozens more were injured.
